Sculptural Furnishings

Finding One of the secrets of good interior design is to add a mix of workmanlike furniture with a few pieces of high interest. What makes for high interest? Sometimes it's the unusual, the outrageous, or the unexpected, like the striking use of aluminum and fiberglass in Marc Newson's Lockheed Lounge chair, pictured above. But most often, high-interest pieces - what adds zip and juice to any space - consists of furnishings or lighting that is highly sculptural. Look at the beautiful shapes of objects and see how they tie in with the curves, straight lines, colors, and mood of a room. Start a conversation, wake up a sleepy space, and "go sculptural." Designer Irwin Weiner ASID shows you a few examples from a Milan store in the following video.
